About Froxfield Choir

Froxfield Choir was formed in 1976 by Elizabeth Gotto and she continued to direct the choir, with a short break while she was abroad, until 2004. She is still an active supporter of the choir and for many years was conductor in the Service of Lessons and Carols at Holy Trinity, Privett.

Following Elizabeth’s retirement the choir was led initially by Nick Wilkes and then for eight years by Richard Smith. In January 2014 they welcomed a new Music Director, Richard McVeigh.

With around 45 members the Choir’s repertoire extends from the great choral works to lesser known pieces. Recent concerts have included David Fanshawe’s African Sanctus, which they were subsequently invited to sing on the opening night of the Petersfield Musical Festival in 2013, Bach’s Magnificat in D major and Handel’s Messiah. As well as performing two or three major concerts each year, the Choir is occasionally available for weddings, funerals or other services.
